UP Civic Polls 2012: BJP Wins 9 out of 12 Seats

Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) returned with a bang, sweeping mayoral seats across the state. The party won nine out of 12 seats, including Lucknow, after the results of four-phase civic polls were announced on Saturday. The Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party didn’t contest these elections but the SP-supported candidates won in Bareilly and Ghaziabad while Allahabad seat went to BSP-supported candidate. SP-supported candidate Sudha Rawat was declared winner in Ghaziabad amidst vehement protest by the BJP nominee Teluram and party workers. As for Congress, it was a total wipeout for the party which failed to win a single seat. A beaming UP BJP chief Laxmikant Bajpayi claimed that the SP government’s honeymoon was over. Giving credit to the people's support after God's blessing and BJP workers' hard work, Bajpayi said: “People's honeymoon of 115 days with Samajwadi Party government is over and with this support now BJP will ensure a divorce between the people and SP government in 2014 LS poll.”
